    Often people ask me why I'm still single, considering my age :-) Well, I ask myself the same question – and God :-) And every time I ask God that question, I end up even more secured in His beautiful plan for me. Mind you, I'm no Ms. Idealistic waiting for 'Mr. Perfect', nor a Princess waiting for my 'knight in shining armor'. I'm just one daughter waiting for my Father's 'best', the one He has created for me. And as I wait, I learned to appreciate singlehood more, knowing that:

    1) SINGLEHOOD IS GOD’S GIFT FOR US TO ENJOY LIFE FREELY FOR OURSELVES. 'Freedom' is so rich at this period. We singles have so much time for ourselves. We can pursue our dreams, do what we want and go anywhere we please with no one to ask permission from (aside from our parents). Not to mention the ‘splurging’ we can do without the fear of depriving anybody :-)

    2) SINGLEHOOD IS A TIME OF PREPARATION. Since marriage is something that shouldn’t be taken lightly, one should be fully prepared for it while still single. Our bodies, minds, hearts, pockets, and most of all our spirits should be made ready to fully enjoy the purpose and fun of marriage. Courage is not the only requirement for getting married. It takes maturity in all areas to make a marriage work.

    3) THERE ARE THINGS GOD WANTS US TO FULFILL WHILE STILL SINGLE. Like the bible says, 'There is a time for everything'. Thus, we need to be sensitive and obey whatever God asks us to do while still single. Maybe He will ask us to bless our parents or bless other people through ministries, charities or mission works. These are the things that can be very challenging to do when married.

    Indeed, singlehood has its own pleasures and privileges. It’s a season that should be cherished, not hated. It should be maximized, not just endured. Once it passes by, it can never be retrieved as it is. We have to make a decision to enjoy it until the next level comes. We shouldn't wear ourselves out looking at the other side of the field, when there are so many things to be thankful for under our very noses. It might be true that loneliness, impatience, disappointments and insecurities usually plague us singles, but if we give ourselves a chance to see singlehood in God's perspective, we'll feel content and overwhelmingly happy that God allows us to enjoy this stage while getting ready for the next level. Exciting, isn't it? :-)
